    Anonymous asked: Who are you getting your Ferguson information from? I'm having problems verifying what's actually happening!

    That’s actually what’s taking me so long to update some of my posts; not only is the information surfacing slowly about his case specifically, but I make sure to cross reference at least three sources because some people are just blatantly lying to stir shit up.

    Also live feeds keep going down and new ones pop back up but I know some of you are sensitive to video, so

    Here’s a list of some twitter handles:

    Journalists (All of these are either on the ground in Ferguson as I type this or actively covering events in Ferguson, both Brown’s case and the rallies):

    Residents/Legislature/Other:

    Instagram Accounts: (TW: Some of these accounts feature graphic video or images of Ferguson events)

    Tumblr Accounts:

    I’m sure I forgot a bunch but here’s a start. I’ll update it periodically and reblog. Some of it is compilations from a bunch of sources, some is original content. Disclaimer: I’m not vouching for any other content on any of these blogs/twitters/instagrams or any that may be posted after this list but as of right now, the information regarding Ferguson and discussions taking place about the rallies/police and Mike Brown’s death seems accurate.

    if you want to be included on any of these lists, shoot me a message with your web-address and I’ll check it out

    You will find everything I’ve posted under tagged/ferguson, tagged/police-brutality or tagged/michael-brown

    updated and combined.

    BREAKING: Police have strategically blocked any opportunities to see what’s happening. #Ferguson

    thepoliticalfreakshow:

    • The younger crowd is pleading for the media to stay: “Show the world what they’re about to do to us!”
    • Just told to go into our cars. An on-scene reporter was told to get into his car, and media were told to get into their cars. It’s about to reach a boiling point in Ferguson.
    • Protesters are asking the media to stand with them and not return to the media area

The New Jim Crow
1. Ferguson, Missouri has a population of approximately 21,000 people — roughly 75% of those residents are Black
2. The Ferguson police department has around 530 cops —less than 5 of them are Black
3. Ferguson had *zero* homicides for all of 2014 —until Michael Brown was murdered by Darrin Wilson
4. Things you should know: Five Myths About Black-on-Black Crime
5. Michael Brown was 18yrs old and was about to begin college. Brown had no criminal record, and despite the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign, Mike Brown PAID FOR the cigars —those facts are all important and should be known, but even if Brown was a high school dropout with prior arrests who stole the cigars, 1) it wouldn’t have made his life any less valuable, 2) we have a court system and those are not capital offenses and 3) it doesn’t change the fact that the cop who killed him, Darren Wilson, had no idea about Brown’s personal history when he executed Brown. Wilson saw only a Black teen deemed either “too uppity” or “suspicious” because of his skin color
6. Five examples: The Militarization of the police
7. It’s deeply Institutional: Police view Black Children As Less Innocent

    unequal enforcement of the law makes a mockery of the rule of law. people wanna talk about crimes how about you start w/ talking about why darren wilson hasn’t been arrested for murder yet

    but of course: it’s a polite fiction (well, to some people) that the laws on the books are applied universally. laws get written and enforced due to social factors, and the laws against murder weren’t designed to be aimed at white cops by the black community.

    my feminist goal is not to convince men that girls are of value, my feminist goal is to achieve a future where the judgement of our value isn’t in the hands of men. 

    and this goes for, especially goes for, trans girls, girls of colour, disabled girls and LGBTQA+ girls. 

    girls, all girls, and if you believe otherwise don’t reblog this.
